 MATH 0075 Credits 3 3.00 Lec
Title Applied Intermediate Algebra
Description Strong emphasis is placed on application of algebra and especially on current uses of function models (linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, radical, logarithmic and exponential). The relationship among data, graphs and functions is thoroughly explored. Translating statements and questions from English into mathematics, answering those questions using algebraic procedures and then stating the results again in English will also be discussed in depth. Only symbolic manipulations that have immediate applications will be studied. MATH 0075 is the minimum algebra preparation for MATH 1140: Introductory Statistics, MATH 1160: Mathematical Ideas, and MATH 1165: Mathematics for Teachers. This course does not prepare you for MATH 1110: College Algebra.
Prerequisites

Placement score into MATH 0075 or completion of MATH 0070 or MATH 0077 or completion of MATH 0065.
